Aloha! My name is Melissa Schroeder and I love Hawaii! We were stationed there for three years and we have been back several times. Several of my series are set in Hawaii, so I use the excuse that it is a tax write off to go. What? It’s a real thing. I do research while I am there and go on buying trips to the Aloha Swap Meet for giveaways.
We returned this Spring and it was as wonderful as always. It is my happy place and this trip marked my first real vacation in 4 years.
Your view on your way down to baggage claim at the Honolulu Airport.
Where we stayed for our 10 days! The Hilton is usually our go to for accommodations.
The view from our room with my very handsome husband!
Our visits are never without a stop at The World Famous (and featured on Hawaii Five-O) Leonard’s!
The Lagoon at the Hilton is always pretty but sunrise is one of my favorite times.
This was my view for most of the week.
No trip is complete without a stop by Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam, our stomping grounds for our three years there. The Missing Man Memorial is one of my favorite places on Hickam.
Too soon, our time was over and we were on our way back to the mainland. This was my last view from the Hilton lobby before we headed back to the airport.
Be sure to check out Melissa Schroeder’s new release, The Boss, out now!
Sick of the spy game, former CIA operative Vic Walker takes time off from his security firm to figure out just what he wants out of life. But peace and quiet isn’t in the cards with a former business partner and ex-lover like MacKenzie Donovan.
Mac doesn’t like asking for help from anyone, but this latest case has her in a little over her head. She crashes back into Vic’s life with the CIA, the Russian Mob, and the FBI, on her tail after a job goes south.
But even as old feelings rise to the surface while they’re busy dodging bullets, the authorities, and mobsters, they’ll need to get out alive before they can have a second chance at love.
